|"A proper bastard"|
So who will take over Schweyer's seat on Allentown City Council? Over the weekend, Council Prez Julio Guridy and King Edwin, at a meeting of Democrats, floated a familiar name Mike Fleck. He's their campaign manager and does intend to relocate to Allentown imminently , if he has not done so already.
But the Fleckster has vetoed this idea.
"If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve," he told me in his best William Tecumsek Sherman imitation. Sherman, a Northern General during the Civil War, is the proper bastard who promised, "I will make Georgia howl!" He did, too, burning Atlanta to the ground.
Fleck denies he has any plans to burn Allentown. He just wants to transform it. He claims too busy growing his business and getting candidates elected to even think about seeking office for the foreseeable future.
